Piltown Engineering, with over 50 years of experience in manufacturing lighting columns and associated products, established a standalone manufacturing plant for producing octagonal and multi-sided columns and masts. By adopting ProgressPlus, the company gained better control over production processes, resulting in a consistent output and enabling them to punch above their weight. The software’s power of data allowed for better continuity, delegation, and access to historical information, making it an invaluable tool for the business with continual improvement and excellent support from the team at Berkeley Myles Solutions.
The adoption of ProgressPlus has resulted in better control over production processes and significant financial advantages. The software’s power of data has led to better inventory management, reduced material waste, and improved cost control.
“Our ability to consistently produce high-quality output and punch above our weight has been instrumental in our growth and success in our chosen specialist field,” said Kate Hogan, the Managing Director at Piltown Engineering. “These benefits, combined with the use of innovative technologies like ProgressPlus, have contributed significantly to our achievements.”
